    A statement issued by the director, Lagos State Examinations Board, Mr. Supo Gbadegesin had it that the BECE has been rescheduled to commence from Wednesday, 8th June to Wednesday, 15th June, 2022 in the respective schools of the candidates.

    He added that most registered Approved Private Junior Secondary Schools are yet to upload the bio-data of their candidates which caused the delay in the printing of their OMR Sheets.

    In the same vein, the director informed that it is pertinent to shift the dates of the examinations to accommodate other schools that were unable to upload the data of their candidates into the Board’s Database not to deny these students the opportunity to write the examinations.

    The statement added, “The Board, therefore, solicited for the understanding of all stakeholders and assured all concerned schools that the NEW DATES remain sacrosanct. The director regretted any inconveniences the postponement might cause.”
